go to tools / accounts
delete the account that is giving you problems
then add it back in
what is the part of the account name AFTER THE @ ONLY and is it the same as the other att account that does work.
and can you access that account with the email address and password XXXXX you have going directly through att or yahoo's website ?
ok here is a quick guess before i go look up the server settings.
Have you got the outgoing server set to "needs authentification" use same as incoming.?
That will screw you up because if there are messages to send on that account it tries to send them before it tries to read them and if its not set to authenticate you wont be logged in to send.
ATT is pretty weird about their email. There are any one of like 5 servers that should all work but usually only 1 of them does. And which one it is can vary from day to day it seems and they may have any particular account set up to use any particular server. The fact that they have yahoo running half of their email address's doesnt help either.
Strange as it sounds they may have given one of your accounts to yahoo and kept one on their own server even though they have the same domain name.
try using these settings
Email address:[email protected]Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.att.yahoo.com Incoming mail server SSL: enabledIncoming mail port: 995Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.att.yahoo.com Outgoing mail server SSL: enabledOutgoing mail port: 465Username: your username Password: your password
Its possible it is outlook. But its pretty rare for it to have problems with only one account that way. what settings is the ipad or kindle using that work ?
and what is the exact error message that you get ? i want to know what server it cant log into so i can see if it is incoming or outgoing.
those should work
try it on ports 110 and 25 with ssl off
or 995 and 465 with ssl ON
Try this just for fun.
In the acccount that does work
change the user name and password XXXXX the ones for the account that doesnt work. If it works that way than its an outlook problem setting up a new account. If it still doesnt work than att is doing something weird with it.
